The most severe occured from 21 to 22 May and from 9 to 10 June, and reached an order of 150m and 300m respectively. The meter at 1055m depth on this mooring shows current speeds reaching 100 and 120 cm/sec during these periods. The data processing laboratory's comment on this knockdown is that the mooring may have been caught by a trawler and moved a small distance. Our comment: This is one of four current meter records from the same mooring (the other three are Accessions 511, 512, and 513). The pressure record from this instrument indicates that during the anomalous event of 9 - 11 June the mooring became shallower by about 25 meters. Although we have made no attempt to clean up these four records, they do contain some episodes of tainted data. These records should be used with circumspection.
